Who's Who? Reg Poole That's Who
Another honour has been bestowed upon the gentle giant of Australian country music, with the release of the 2008 inaugural edition of who's who in Victoria. Over 6000 names of prominent people in the state have had their story and accomplishments highlighted in this first up edition. People from all walks of life are featured, politicians, sportsmen and women, professors show biz personalities etc. ,etc. Reg was heard to say that he was very grateful for his inclusion in the book and would like to thank the people responsible for his nomination, and hoped that he could continue to carry on with the "work" that loves to do. Many things are on the agenda of reg at the moment-------- he's busy putting down a new cd at Redback Studios in Leeton NSW and has been gathering songs for the project over the last few months. Some of the songs chosen have been written by the likes of john Williamson, Keith Jamison, Sharon Benjamin, Johnny Chester, Eric Watson, Mack Cormack and others ----------- there's even a couple of Reg's there too. Likely release date for the album is September.
